Coconut Patties

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars

This is the second coconut confection that I purchased from the Cracker Barrel, and it’s pretty much the complete opposite of the 3 Color Coconut, at least in terms of quality. Where 3 Color Coconut features the worst qualities of coconut candy (unpleasant chewiness combined with a lack of flavour), Coconut Patties features the [...]

Goldenberg’s Original Peanut Chews

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars

With some older candies, their continuing longevity is somewhat mystifying to me (the surprisingly unpleasant Necco Wafers being a prime example of this). However, in the case of Goldenberg’s Original Peanut Chews, I can definitely understand how they’ve managed to stick around all these years (since 1917, according to the packaging): they’re simple, satisfying [...]

I guess at some point the candy manufacturers realized that they could make more money by releasing [...]

Oh Henry!

Posted by: Michael In: Candy Bars

I should probably mention that the Oh Henry! bar that I’m reviewing probably isn’t the Oh Henry! that you’re used to – unless, that is, you’re a Canadian. In the U.S., Oh Henry! is made by Nestle, while here in Canada it’s manufactured by Hershey. This is one area in which I’m definitely [...]
